Fandom Fashion Finds: August Picks

Luckily August was a little quieter on the fandom fashion front. I could use a breather after July. And I’m sure with Force Friday coming up, there will be a bunch of new Star Wars items next month. So for now, let’s get to this month’s picks:

Star Wars

August brought us six more pairs of Star Wars shoes. Read my review from the Star Wars x Sperry 40th anniversary collection here. And learn more about the Po-Zu silver Limited Edition linen & Pinatex vegan Resistance sneakers here.

I’m also intrigued by:

Elhoffer Design added a pre-order for her Galactic Snips Longline Cardigan ($70 pre-order).

Her Universe has a Empire Strikes Back Tie-Back Circle Skirt ($49.90) that brings bedsheet fashion more mainstream.

Box Lunch added Rebel and Imperial dad hats ($18.90 each). I like their minimal style.

State Bags has a not inexpensive but very cool new Star Wars backpack collection (starts at $80). Your can read more about State and these bags on StarWars.com.

Also this month Tricia spotted some new Star Wars shirts for men and women at a Disney Park. Many of them can be found on the Shop Disney Parks App.

Also seen this month:

Hero Within’s previously SDCC-exclusive-only Wonder Woman fashion t-shirt ($29) available in limited quantities from the comfort of your own internet connection. Their Premium Flash Hoodie ($99) is also now in stock.

 

Disney

The Disney Store added some Haunted Mansion-themed Alex and Ani bracelets to their site: Haunted Mansion Singing Busts Bangle and Madame Leota Bangle ($44.95 each). They’re subtle, fun, and stackable.

Unique Vintage expanded their Happiest Collection on Earth with a Villain’s Edition. These are great for everyday cosplay and Disneybounding.

Check out Hot Topic’s first shoe collection, based on the tv show Once Upon a Time ($72.90 – 89.90).

Need more shoes? Bensimon has tropical Tennis Bensimon X Disney Mickey Mouse shoes (32 – 35,00 €).

Disney Style also has some ideas for incorporating Disney pieces into your fall fashion.

Han Cholo’s Dragon Ring ($290) may be of interest to Game of Thrones fans (h/t Johna).

ANOVOS added a pre-order for their Battlestar Galactica Classic Colonial Warrior Jacket ($300). You can read about the research that went into re-creating the jacket on their site.

Her Universe has this subtle, floral Doctor Who skirt with pockets! ($49.90) The skirt is also available on EMP for those in the UK. 

I’d like these Studio Ghibli My Neighbor Totoro socks ($9.90) from Box Lunch – please and thank you. And speaking of Studio Ghibli, this Princess Mononoke Minimal Tank Top ($26.90) from Her Universe is a beauty.
